New Car: 2016 Fiat Aegea
At 2015 Istanbul Auto Show FCA Group revealed its latest compact sedan, Fiat Aegea. To be known as ‘Fiat Aegea Project’, the new sedan replaces the old Linea. The Aegea is the result of join venture between Italian carmaker and Turkey. It’s designed at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Centro Stile, Italy and developed in Turkey.
From the exterior design, Aegea brings a nice and good looking car. At the front, Fiat designers put the elegant design which features nice design of headlights and grille with chrome accents. Just like in the front fascia, at the rear you can see the beautiful design features C-shape taillights and there are sculpted lines in the side that make the car even better. Meanwhile, Aegea dimension measures 4.5 meters long, 1.78 meters wide, 1.48 meters high, and 2.64 meters wheelbase. And for load capacity is over 510 liter.
Inside, black color dominates the interior with the high quality material. Fiat claims that its cabin is spacious and able to accommodate 5 people comfort. In the center cockpit, there’s a 5-inch screen that displays UConnect multimedia system. Furthermore, buyer will get hands-free Bluetooth calling, SMS Text Reader, Voice Recognition, AUX & USB Port with iPod integration, and rear parking camera (optional).
For the powertrain, Fiat hasn’t announced the details yet. The automaker just said that it had petrol and diesel engines with output from 95 hp to 120 hp and mated to manual or automatic transmission. For the diesel engine the company claims that its fuel consumption is around 25 km/liter.
2016 Fiat Aegea will be assembled in the Tofas Plant, Bursa, Tukey. The compact sedan will be released in November in Turkey and it will gradually reach over 40 countries in EMEA region.
My question is, does Fiat Aegea preview the next generation of Dodge Dart or a compact sedan from Chrysler?
